Inventor designs plane that can parachute passengers to safety in a crash

Russian engineer Vladimir Tatarenko has designed a plane that can survive a  crash by not being part of it at all. This is because the cabin detaches in an emergency, parachuting to safety.

Vladimir Tatarenko has worked on this project for 3 years and has recently released these mockup videos.

The capsule can land on the ground and in water, utilising rubber tubes to soften the impact.

With fewer than 500 people dying in plane crashes in any given year, the technology has received mixed reactions from people online.
